The MPB is: songwriter Michael Parrish (vocals, keyboard, guitar), a veteran of the blues world who's toured as the pianist for greats such as B.B. Odum, Guitar Gabriel, and Big Boy Henry; Chris Hansen (guitar, back vocals), formerly of The Other Half; Jonny Sheehan (guitar, washboard); Dave Hamburger (Bass); and Tommy Kaelin (Drums), formerly of The Hatters.
"Christy's Big Secret", the MPB's second release, is an enhanced CD that contains the MPB video "Money". Stop by our website and get yourself a copy today!
We've left the job of describing our sound to the experts:
"If you like raw, rootsy guitar-rock, the Michael Parrish Band is worth checking out. Parrish is sort of a Yankee Steve Earle. His songs include smart, honest lyrics and lots of guitars.... This is a band and a songwriter with a bright future."
--The Popcorn Music Review
"From New York by way of Texas, this five-piecer finds itself somewhere on the swampy side of the street between the roadhouse boogie of Delbert McClinton and the country-folkish-bluesy singer/songwriter style of Guy Clark.
-- Lew Herman, Creative Loafing Online
This is prime stuff. Straight-up rock with slight folk and country leanings. Overall, think of a less gravel-voiced Tom Petty fronting a less polished version of the Heartbreakers.
